How do I add SPF/DKIM or TXT records for my domain?

If your domain is pointed to our BasicDNS, BackupDNS or PremiumDNS, you can easily set up TXT/SPF/DKIM records in your Namecheap account.

Follow the instructions below to add a needed record:

1. Having logged into the Namecheap account, choose Domain List on the left and click on the Manage button next to your domain:



2. Navigate to the Advanced DNS tab from the top menu and click on the Add new record button:



3. Select TXT Record for Type and insert a string (usually, you can get it from your service provider) into the Value field.

For Host, add @ that corresponds to yourdomain.tld or a subdomain (ftp, for example) you need to create the TXT/SPF/DKIM record for:


4. Click on the Save all changes button. Normally, it takes 30 minutes for newly created host records to take effect.

You can also use the form located on this page to generate a string. Then copy it and save it in the box (with no quotes). The SPF record will be created automatically in your domain's host records.


That's it!
